CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers clinched the number one spot in the Eastern Conference with a win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.
On Wednesday night, the team will host the Detroit Pistons, which is a potential first-round matchup, in the final game of the season.
After the Pistons, it’s the playoffs.
Cavs fans are international. Jake Nasser came to Cleveland from Alberta, Canada to watch Monday night’s game against Atlanta.
“In for the night, fly back tomorrow,” said Nasser. Before he went to the game, he helped build up Cleveland’s economy by eating at Harry Buffalo.
“It’s kind of slow right now, but playoff time you can’t get a table in here,” said Harry Buffalo’s manager Dave Howes. “All the local businesses right here. LeBron. One man changes the whole economy.”
Nearby businesses know once the postseason starts, the cash will also start rolling in.
“Playoff game tickets are a little more expensive, so people hang out in the bar then,” said Howes. “We get crazy down here. Last year during the finals, the whole street was shut down, you couldn’t even move in here.”
